Letter: Elks amaze with assistance program


To the editor,

My husband and I would like to express our appreciation to the Elks Lodge 967 Home Assistance Program, especially to Jim Desmarais and his “merry band” of helpers who arrived cheerfully in their bright colorful vests ready to work.

It was especially amazing because it was only two days after Thanksgiving that they gave up some of their holiday weekend to help us. The leaves and brush disappeared in no time considering our backyard is quite large.

Again our thanks to all the volunteers who did such a beautiful job.

Margaret and John Cobbol
